Plenty of people have no foreseeable need for more than eight cores so "being limited to eight cores" is of no consequence. I will most likely upgrade my i5-3470 next year and the choice between the i5-11400 and Ryzen 5600 will boil down to system performance-per-dollar with my personal experience of never having had issues with Intel builds vs no-boot with Ryzen twice being the tie-breaker.Who, with the right mind, will do such a thing ? And for what reason ?
It's a shame that fanboyism has caused your intelligence to be visually lacking. This engineering sample was on par with the 10900k(5.3ghz) at 17% lower clocks. The final product is going to have the fastest single threaded performance of any CPU in history by far. Also, it'll be supported on all existing 400 series motherboards.Why would I want to upgrade new processor + new Mobo to something that still uses 14++++++nm, limited to only 8 core, and have single core performance less than previous gen processor, and possibly less than Zen3 ?
